Brandon Bass is receiving plenty of attention as a free agent, according to the Boston Globe.
The Celtics are still in play to re-sign power forward Brandon Bass, who is being courted by as many as six teams.
Bass might be the most important remaining piece to Boston’s offseason, which makes sense considering he’s the only unsigned starter left. If the Celtics don’t keep him or use his contract in a sign-and-trade, they might not have any cap space left to chase a starting power forward/center. That could lead to, ahem, worst case, ugh, re-signing Nenad Krstic and utilizing him in a key role. (Seriously, the C’s have his Bird rights. It’s not out of the question. And yes, even though I don’t want Krstic within shouting distance of the starting lineup, I still think he could be useful in a smaller capacity.)
So, yeah, expect the Celtics to keep Bass. I just hope they don’t have to overpay him because of all his interest league-wide.
